: Yeah. I don't begrudge anyone for waiting for
: the trades. I've been a Moon Knight fan
: since the 80's, but I had to wait 20 years
: to afford all the back issues because I
: never had the money to collect them.
: Sales do make up a huge part of a book's
: justification for print, but I imagine
: Marvel pays as much attention to the sales
: of their trades as they do their monthlies.
: It's obvious Quesada and company are fans of
: the character and are aware of his following
: (and the money to be made off said
: following) or they wouldn't be pushing MK so
: hard. If you want (or have) to wait for the
: TPBs to come out, more power to you (just
: keep buying them so Marvel can see they are
: selling ^_^) I'm just happy the character
: hasn't been put on Marvel's Jack Monroe
: Memorial List of Characters We Don't Think
: Anyone Will Miss So Let's Kill Them.
: --Previous Message--
: there are merits to both sides of the
: but honestly it comes down to your own
: personal budget, whether you can afford to
: pick up the singles every month or not is a
: matter of personal finances, not someone
: else's opinion on if you're a "true
: fan" of the character.

: As fellow MK disciples I would like to
: this debate to you all.
: In looking for the TPB release dates I came
: across a forum where an MK fan acused those
: who wait for the TPBs to come out (and DO
: NOT buy single issues) of not being true MK
: fans. Im guilty of waiting for collected
: editions for the recent arks and dont feel
: bad about it HOWEVER I clearly see the point
: that the run can be canceled if we wait on
: the TPB. Who thinks that passing on singles
: and going for the collected editions will
: kill the Bendis run in 2011?
